Marvin Jones says the foot/ankle injury that wiped out his 2014 season is "not there anymore."
Jones missed the season, requiring surgery to remove bone chips in his foot/ankle region. "We looked at it, got it fixed, and it’s not there anymore," said Jones. "It was an unfortunate situation, but it’s behind me." After being eased into OTAs, Jones was a full participant at mandatory minicamp in June. One year removed from a ten-touchdown season, Jones offers low-end to mid-range WR3 appeal at his affordable 13th-round fantasy ADP. Jul 20 - 7:37 PM

Marvin Jones appeared 100 percent during last week's minicamp.

The Bengals used the minicamp as a "baptism by fire" for Jones, who missed all of last year with a foot/ankle injury. He responded perfectly, sporting "quick and crisp" routes while showing no lingering effects of the injury. Jones, a playmaking deep threat who had 10 touchdowns on just 80 targets in 2013, is penciled in as the No. 2 wideout opposite A.J. Green. He's shaping up as a sneaky sleeper.

Marvin Jones (hamstring) participated in 11-on-11 work Tuesday.

It was just a minor tweak. The real story is that Jones is fully over the foot/ankle issue that ruined his 2014 campaign. He's expected to immediately slide back in opposite A.J. Green, pushing Mohamed Sanu into his natural slot role.

Updating a previous item, Marvin Jones (hamstring) has not been cleared for Bengals OTAs.

It was reported last week that Jones got the green light for the start of OTAs. But Jones ended up tweaking his hamstring and couldn't pass a physical. The good news is that it isn't an issue with his foot or ankle. Jones expects to be out there in the next few days. He'll likely start opposite A.J. Green this season.

Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) has been cleared for OTAs.

Jones has an inside track on the starting X-receiver job, but needs to prove he’s fully over his injuries after missing all of 2014. The Bengals are hoping a healthy Jones can provide a big-play threat opposite A.J. Green.
May 23 - 4:15 PM

Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) confirmed he has no limitations as the offseason program begins.

Jones hurt his foot in last year's training camp and suffered a bunch of setbacks causing him to miss the entire season. He also underwent ankle surgery on his other wheel. When we last saw him in 2013, he was a big-play machine -- 52 catches for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns on just 80 targets. Now 100 percent, Jones has an inside track on the starting job opposite A.J. Green heading into this season.

Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) is back to full health.

"He's ready to go," coach Marvin Lewis said Thursday. "He's got a lot to prove and a lot on the line." Jones said two weeks ago that he had the green light to do "anything and everything." Jones was a touchdown machine in 2013, but has just 69 catches across 27 career games. He'll battle Mohamed Sanu for a starting job.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) expects to be ready for OTAs.

"I’ve got the green light to do anything and everything I need to do to get back to where I need to be," Jones said. "I’ve been surprised at the progress I’ve made in only going on my second week training." It's encouraging news for Jones, who could use a full offseason following his lost 2014. Jones is headed into the final year of his rookie contract. He's caught 69 passes for 913 yards and 11 touchdowns across 27 career games.
Feb 5 - 5:30 PM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said WR Marvin Jones (ankle, foot) is "progressing well."

Jones was placed on I.R. in October and didn't appear in any games this past year. He's recovering from foot surgery and a major ankle issue. Jones emerged as a red-zone threat in 2013 and will need to stay healthy to reestablish his value. 24-year-old Jones is entering the final year of his contract.
Jan 31 - 2:39 PM

Bengals placed WR Marvin Jones on injured reserve with a foot/ankle issue, ending his season.

Jones visited a specialist on Tuesday, and apparently didn't get the news he needed. He's expected to undergo surgery. Jones has been dealing with left foot/ankle issues since the beginning of training camp, first spraining his ankle before breaking his foot. He was expected to make his 2014 debut in Week 5 before re-injuring his ankle. With A.J. Green (toe) also ailing, the Bengals simply couldn't wait around for Jones to get healthy. Still only 24, Jones is signed through 2015. He emerged as a big-play and red-zone threat in 2013, and is worth keeping around in Dynasty leagues.

Marvin Jones (ankle) is going to North Carolina to meet with a specialist.

Jones is presumably going to see Dr. Robert Anderson as he can't get over the hump with his foot/ankle issues. It seems like surgery is very much in play at this point. Jones can be dropped in all standard re-draft formats.
Tue, Oct 14, 2014 09:15:00 AM

The Bengals aren't seeing "any progress" with Marvin Jones' foot/ankle issue.

The blunt assessment from coach Marvin Lewis could be an indication that injured reserve is in Jones' future. At the very least, he can be safely ruled out for Week 7.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 03:12:00 PM

There is some talk that Marvin Jones may need foot/ankle surgery.

Jones hasn't been healthy in nearly a year as he's battled repeated aggravations. The Bengals may want to save him from himself and get the joint repaired surgically. With A.J. Green (toe) also expected out for Week 7, we're going to see a lot of Mohamed Sanu again. Jones can be dropped in all re-draft formats.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 10:21:00 AM

Marvin Jones (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Week 6.
